No need for store bought ice pops full of questionable ingredients, this creamy combo with fresh strawberries and coconut refreshes on the hottest summer days.
One of the easiest and most satisfying summer recipes is homemade ice pops. In just a few hours, you have a frozen Paleo treat that is low in sugar and made with only 4 wholesome ingredients. The best part of making your own pops is controlling the type of sweetener you add. In these strawberry-coconut pops, pure honey adds just the right amount of sweetness. The honey combines with unsweetened coconut milk for a lightly sweet coconut base. These popsicles are naturally dairy-free, perfect for anyone with sensitivities to dairy.
To create an ice pop that is as beautiful as it is delicious, slide fresh slices of strawberries down the side of the popsicle mold. Once frozen and removed from the molds, the strawberries are visible and look super summery. Pieces of strawberries and shredded coconut run throughout the pops, creating a chewy texture with every bite as the pops melt. If you prefer more of a smooth texture to your popsicles, simply combine the ingredients in a blender, blend until smooth, and then pour into popsicle molds.
After about an hour in the freezer, place the popsicle sticks into the center of each mold. Letting the popsicles freeze a little bit first allows the sticks to stay centered as they finish freezing.
Please note that these popsicles are icier than store-bought frozen coconut bars you may have tried. The type of coconut milk in these pops is from a carton, not a can. For a richer ice cream-like texture, try using canned coconut cream instead of coconut milk.
4-Ingredient Strawberry Coconut Popsicles
- 1 cup unsweetened coconut milk

Pro tip: Once your pops are ready and completely frozen, run the popsicle mold under lukewarm water to help separate the popsicle from the mold.
